Wikipedia’s article: paranoia; “regressive escape from frustration by distortion and denial of reality;” “a disturbing form of narcissistic personality where grandiosity is built around aggression and the destructive aspects of the self become idealized;” “an absence of conscience, a psychological need for power, and a sense of importance (grandiosity);” “joyful cruelty and sadism;” “some of them may present rationalized antisocial behavior — for example, as leaders of sadistic gangs or terrorist groups…with the capacity for loyalty to their own comrades.”

By the above definition Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump are phycological twins — cruel and cunning. And upon their rise to power (being devoid of any self-awareness) they strutted about the world stage with stupid, peacock grandiosity.

There’s a strange sort of mega suicide impulse within them. Their self-loathing is of such epic proportions of destructiveness that they have an insatiable desire to exterminate as many fellow humans as possible before terminating themselves. In Hitler’s case it was in the neighborhood of some sixty-million lives that he had caused to die before he took poison and shot himself. And now with his nasty little finger on the nuclear button, the mega awesome Trump has the means by which to top Hitler’s homicidal numbers a millionfold.

In terms of the universal law of probability balance, Donald John Trump represent the ultimate destructive offset to all of humankind’s previous creations — the end.
